Marking His Record-Breaking 55th Consecutive Year as a Las Vegas Headliner

‘Mr. Warmth’ Don Rickles Returns to The Orleans Showroom August 16-17 and October 11-12

 

Returning to Las Vegas for a record-smashing 55th consecutive year, internationally renowned comedian, actor and entertainer Don Rickles is set for two weekends at The Orleans Showroom in 2014: August 16-17 and October 11 and 12.

Having earned the nicknames “The Merchant of Venom” and “Mr. Warmth,” (the latter coined affectionately by Johnny Carson), Rickles’ style of comedy is never mean-spirited and all part of his act. It has been said that being “zinged” by Rickles is like “wearing a badge of honor.”

Rickles took his first step toward national fame in 1957, when Rickles spotted Frank Sinatra in the audience at a nightclub in Miami Beach. The still-unknown Rickles eyed Sinatra and said, “I just saw your movie, ‘The Pride and the Passion,’ and I want to tell you, the cannon was great. Make yourself at home, Frank. Hit somebody.” Sinatra, whose pet name for Rickles was “bullet-head,” enjoyed Rickles so much that he returned to see him when he was performing in Los Angeles, and encouraged other celebrities to see his act. Rickles soon became the “in” comic among Hollywood stars, who flocked to see him to become a target of his insults. Sinatra’s continuing support helped Rickles become a popular performer in Las Vegas, where he first started in 1959, and has been a headliner ever since.

Shortly after being discovered by Sinatra, Rickles made his acting debut in 1958’s “Run Silent Run Deep.” The movie was a hit, launching Rickles towards a celebrated career as a movie, television and theater actor. His still-growing television and film resume includes roles in “Casino,” “Kelly’s Heroes,” “The Rat Race,” all three “Toy Story” films, HBO’s “Tales From the Crypt,” and Bravo’s “My Life on the D-List” with Kathy Griffin. In 2011, he made a surprise appearance in a “cliff-hanger” episode as the “thought to be dead” husband of Betty White’s character on the TV Land comedy “Hot In Cleveland.” Later in the year, he returned to the show for the “payoff.” He recently appeared on Showtime’s new series “Inside Comedy,” where fellow comedian David Steinberg interviewed him. In 2000, Rickles received one of the highest honors in the entertainment business, when he received a star on the famed Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Rickles has received two Primetime Emmy® Awards, including Best Individual Performance in a Variety or Musical for the 2008 HBO special “Mr. Warmth: The Don Rickles Project.” In 2009, cable network TV Land honored Rickles with the “Legend Award.” Rickles’ best-selling memoir “Rickles’ Book” was released in 2007, and was followed up with the 2008 title “Rickles’ Letters.

In spring 2012, Rickles joined David Letterman as the only performers to receive the prestigious “Johnny Carson Award for Comedic Excellence” at The Comedy Awards, aired on Comedy Central. The award was presented to Rickles by Jon Stewart and Robert DeNiro. And this June, Rickles was honored with the Friars Club’s Lifetime Achievement Award for Comedy at a star-studded awards gala at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New York. Among those participating in honoring Don through their songs or words were Lewis Black, Louis C.K., Natalie Cole, Bob Costas, Tony Danza, Robert DeNiro, Kathy Griffin, Diana Krall, John Mayer, Bob Newhart, Regis Philbin, Joan Rivers, Bob Saget and John Stamos.

In addition to recurring dates in Las Vegas at The Orleans, Rickles continues to be a popular performer in venues throughout the country.

Tickets are on sale May 3 for the August 16-17 performances. The October 11-12 shows will go on sale at a later date.

Showtime each evening is 8 p.m. Tickets are available starting from $79.95, plus tax and convenience fees, and can be purchased at any Boyd Gaming Box Office, by calling 702.365.7075, or visiting www.orleanscasino.com.

Jeff Dunham Brings “Disorderly Conduct” to the Colosseum at Caesars Palace, 12/13

COMEDIAN JEFF DUNHAM BRINGS “DISORDERLY CONDUCT”
TO THE COLOSSEUM AT CAESARS PALACE
THURSDAY, DECEMBER 13

Tickets for Las Vegas show go on sale Friday, September 14 at 10 a.m.

Jeff Dunham, the modern day comedic ringmaster of the world’s most hilarious cast of characters, just announced his newest “Disorderly Conduct” tour will make a stop at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace on Thursday, Dec. 13 at 8 p.m. The show is jointly presented by Caesars Palace and AEG Live.

Tickets go on sale Friday, Sept. 14 at 10 a.m. and may be purchased in person at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace Box Office, by calling 1-888-9-AXS-TIX (1.888.929.7849) or online by visiting www.thecolosseum.com  or www.axs.com, keyword “Jeff Dunham.” Ticket prices are $89.50, $69.50, $59.50 and $49.50 (all prices include 10% Live Entertainment Tax). Showtime is 8 p.m. Orders are subject to additional service charges and fees.

Dunham and his comedic sidekicks recently taped a new Comedy Central one hour special entitled “Minding the Monsters,” scheduled to be broadcast on Oct. 7th with a DVD available on Oct. 9th. The new show is the fifth in a string of record breaking specials. “Minding the Monsters” takes its audience into the ultimate haunted house where you can see Walter transform into something grumpier than he already is, watch Bubba J rise from the dead, meet Peanut’s alter ego, The Purple Avenger of the Night, and his spicy sidekick, and witness Achmed literally dressed to kill in an outfit that would terrify the most terrifying terrorist!

The phenomenal international success of Dunham and his cohorts have been driven by his Comedy Central specials, which set global records for both ratings and sales. Last September, Dunham’s 4th Comedy Central TV special “Controlled Chaos,” premiered to a staggering 8.3 million viewers overall making it the most viewed cable show that night. The global TV event enjoyed a never-before simultaneous same day worldwide debut in a dozen countries. Dunham continued to break ratings records at the end of 2011, when The Bio Channel’s premiere of Jeff Dunham: “Birth of a Dummy” became the network’s top rated telecast ever. No wonder The New York Times Magazine declared Jeff Dunham “the most successful comedian working in America.” Dunham was recently named Pollstar’s #1 Comedy Tour in North America for three years running as well as their Top Worldwide Tour for the third year in a row. In addition, Dunham’s undeniable talent placed him on Forbes magazine’s Celebrity 100 roster of most powerful entertainers for the past four years.

Dunham’s autobiography “All By My Selves: Walter, Peanut, Achmed, And Me” debuted in late 2010 and instantly climbed the New York Times best sellers list and achieved a Five-Star Reader Rating on Amazon. The book candidly recounts Dunham’s amazing rise to international fame beginning with his first public performances for a mere $5 a show as a fourth-grader in his Dallas, Texas hometown, followed by years of intensive touring on the comedy club circuit from his college years into adulthood to becoming an international comedy phenomenon.

The amazing rise of Jeff Dunham continues apace, with 2012 having seen Jeff continue to pack arena-sized venues. He made his fourth trip to Europe this spring, stopping in the U.K., Germany, and Belgium. Dunham also completed his second trip to South Africa, playing to sold out crowds at some of the nation’s biggest venues in Cape Town, Durban, Sun City and Johannesburg, and recently embarked on his second trip to Australia.
